Tomorrow is the budget deadline for California lawmakers. Governor Brown is indicating he might accept a deal with so-called gimmicks, like the selling of state buildings, to get a budget passed. 50 years ago another Governor Brown - Pat Brown - faced similar battles with Republicans. But he was able to convince enough of them to go along with his ideas. And some of them were big ideas..ideas that transformed California. Sascha Rice, grand daughter of Pat Brown talks about her documentary California State of Mind: The Legacy of Pat Brown.
